A Golfing Triumph

Donnington Valley Golf Club Host our Annual Golf Day

A huge thanks must go to The Vineyard Group and Donnington Valley Golf Club for hosting our Annual Golf Day on 30th September. 14 teams took to the greens on a beautiful sunny day and fun was had by all. Thanks to the generosity of The Vineyard Group and the participants an amazing £2,500 was raised which will go towards our permanent site for which we are busy fundraising.

The Power of Pavlova

Cote Restaurants donate an amazing £65,759 through sales of pavlova

Throughout September, all the proceeds from the sale of Cote’s monthly special dessert of seasonal Pavlova have been donated to Swings & Smiles, A staggering total of £65,759 has been raised through this initiative. Sian Cook, Founder of Swings & Smiles was thrilled when Alex Scrimgeour, CEO of Cote Restaurants, suggested the promotion after hearing about the charity’s need to fund the build of its new facility. At least £450k needs to be raised and so the incredible £65,759 raised throughout all 80 Cote Restaurants will make a significant contribution towards reaching this target. She said: ‘We are overwhelmed by Cote’s generosity. It has been an incredible fundraising initiative and we are so grateful to everyone at Cote and their customers for their kindness and generosity in getting us well and truly on our way to reaching our goal and establishing our long term future.’
